Overview

When Shelby Holt convinces a friend to work at Wildhorse Pass tourist ranch, she never imagines he will die there. The police say Michael's death was accidental, but Shelby doesn't believe it. Haunted by guilt, she puts her academic career on hold to investigate.

Just back from the Middle East, Chad Graham is guilt-ridden over Michael's death too. He poses as a ranch hand at Wildhorse Pass to investigate the woman claiming his cousin's death is suspicious. Were the police wrong? Or is Shelby hiding something?

Shelby knows she can't trust her heart, but when it comes to Chad, she can't trust her head either. He looks uncannily like Michael. Yet even as their distrust deepens, sensual attraction simmers between them. The closer Shelby and Chad get to answers--and to each other--the closer they get to danger...and to a killer who will stop at nothing to avoid discovery.

    Good But Fell a Bit Short In Some Areas

    Every now and again I get in the mood to read something suspenseful and after reading the blurb to Brenda Gayle's newest release, The Doubting Heart, I was greatly intrigued. After turning the final page I'm left a bit disappointed though. There were many good aspects about this book but some things just didn't work for me.

    What worked for me were the scenic descriptions. Coming from a rural background I applaud the author on the rich and realistic descriptions of ranch life and the rugged men who work there. It was easy to get immersed into this world. To go with this rugged world is a truly sexy hero who I found myself enamored with. Chad's a strong leader, a reliable hero, who's been through the emotional wringer and he definitely deserved a HEA. I just wish his chosen heroine had been more worthy.

    I never warmed up to Shelby. I found her rather weak and unthinking at times in that she carelessly put herself in jeopardy and expected others to save her. I also never felt that passionate spark between her and Chad which led to very little sexual tension between them and a rather clinical sexual interlude. The suspense part of the story was a bit predictable and the ending felt a bit rushed but with its intriguing premise I felt compelled to continue to the moderately satisfying conclusion.

    As the second book in the Heart's Desire series this book can definitely stands on its own. With its warm romance and sure and steady writing style The Doubting Heart will appeal to those looking to read a story that doesn't require much thought. Just sit back and relax in a reading haze. Though this book didn't work for me on every level I will gladly return to Ms. Gayle's library to see what other storylines grab my attention.
